Volunteers make hand-made connections of love and support to babies in Kandiyohi County
Gunnar Thorp is snuggled and asleep in a thick, colorful quilt that not only keeps the 1-month-old baby warm during naps, but also provides a comfy cushion for tummy time that will help strengthen his neck and prepare him for crawling.
The quilt also provides an opportunity for Kandiyohi County Public Health Nurse Marilyn Kemppainen to strengthen a connection with Gunnar’s mom, Kristi Thorpe, as she begins her job as a first-time mother.
